The minority in Parliament has called on President Akufo-Addo government to expedite action on the uncompleted and abandoned health facilities started by the erstwhile Mahama-Administration.
The minority said, the erstwhile Mahama administration’s commitment to the health needs of the people compelled it to invest over 1billion USD in the health sector.
Meanwhile, the facilities have been left to grow weed as government turns blind eye. Per their view Akufo Addo administration is being insensitive with the country’s health sector.
“To be able to employ more nurses and midwives and to provide better health care delivery means expanding the infrastructure in the health sector, hence the investment of over 1 billion USD in the health sector by the previous Mahama administration.”
Ranking Select Committee on Health, Hon. Kwabena Mintah Akandoh at a press briefing in Parliament said the health sector is a very sensitive one and so policies and programs in the sector should be holistic.
He is asking government to take steps to complete and furnish the abandoned health facilities supposed to absorb the graduates to improve healthcare delivery in the country.
“We call on the President to expedite action on the uncompleted and abandoned health facilities littered across the country and also make the already completed ones fully operational. This will result in the creation of more vacancies to be able to absorb the unemployed nurses,” he emphasised.
